The workshop gave me a language with which to organize my hitherto jumbled ideas about my future as an artist… I’ve been able to develop some habits around publication, marketing and sales of my work that were almost too confusing to approach in years past. That’s a huge gift, and one I’ll always be grateful for.

The Artist Business Canvas proved to be a powerful tool to get me thinking in new ways.  It has served as a working map to guide me in these early stages of my new venture. I continue to use it on a regular basis and I plan to continue using it as my business evolves and grows.

I found the Artist Business Canvas very helpful in developing a strategic plan for the future. I used the canvas with my staff in order to get their perspectives and added them to build a more complete picture.  We’re changing the way that we fund what we’re doing and I wanted stakeholder input.
